CAD Technician

Myth busting

As a CAD or computer-aided design technician, you'll use software to create design plans for buildings and machinery. You could work in a wide range of industries from engineering and construction to manufacturing. There are two types of CAD Technicians, 2D designers which do surface modelling and 3D designers who do solid modelling. 2D designers draw a flat representation of product, i.e. a car. A 3D designer will create a 3D display of the structure of the product, i.e. the inside of a building. CAD job roles may also be called: Computer aided industrial design (CAID), Computer aided engineering (CAE), Computer aided styling (CAS), Computer aided manufacturing (CAM).

A CAD Technician at the top of their game can earn as much as £50kp/a
Job Role Progression • Assistant/Apprentice CAD Technician
• CAD Technician
• Senior or Chartered CAD Technician

Finer Details

CAD Technician Apprentices typically start off working 37 - 40 hours a week, Monday to Friday based in a design office, at a CAD design workstation or on a PC.

You may be responsible for:
- Working on the start of a construction and engineering project.
- You may also want to look for work in other industries such as vehicle goods, construction, aerospace, railways, electronics or telecommunications and broadcasting.
- If you are an experienced CAD technician, you could register with the Engineering Council to gain EngTech status, which could help your professional development.

There are many options to progress within a CAD Technician Role.

The good points...

Your options for career progression include promotion to team leader, CAD Manager or Director, Project Manager and Site Manager. With further training, you could become a design engineer and even work from home as a freelancer when you’re more experienced.

... and the bad

This job will involve sitting in front of a computer for hours on end and can involve putting in extra work in the evenings when big projects are due.

×

Web Developer

Myth busting

As a Web Developer (or Web Designer) you will be the brains behind the implementation of a website based on a clients design, as well as testing and maintaining the system. Web Developers have to think very logically because they have to take a design and translate it into a language a computer understands, i.e. HTML.

There are several types of web developer; front-end, back-end and full-stack. Front-end developers are responsible for the parts of a website that people see and interact with, back-end developers are responsible for the behind the scenes code that controls how a website loads and runs, and full-stack developers do a bit of everything.

A Web Developer at the top of their game can earn £70k + p/a
Job Role Progression: • Assistant/Apprentice Web Developer
• Web Developer

The good points...

Your skills will always be in demand so once you have progressed in your role, you will have the opportunity to work for yourself, set your own working hours and rates.

... and the bad

Sometimes clients will call you in for meetings. This can mean travelling far away from home, if you are really established, meaning late night travelling and staying overnight in hotels.

×

Data Entry

Myth busting

Data Entry varies depending on the type of company you are working for because the information you are inputting will be different from company to company. For example, if you work for a sales company you may input data on new clients, if you worked for a research firm it could be market research results. Additionally, the information you enter could be numerical or text based and come from paper-based information or current digital databases that need refining. As you are the ‘data gate-keeper’ you may also be required to help other people find data they are looking for.

A Data Entry Supervisor at the top of their game can earn £30k + p/a
Job Role Progression: • Data Entry Assistant/Apprentice
• Data Entry Associate
• Data Entry Clerk
• Data Entry Specialist
• Data Entry Supervisor

Finer Details

Data Entry job roles are office-based so you can expect to work a 35-40hr week on average, with flexible working shifts often available depending on the company.

Different Opportunities:
- There are a lot of varied data entry roles available because many companies in different industries have huge databases which need to be kept up-to-date.
- As your experience grows there are opportunities to move into management positions.
- You may have the opportunity to move into ICT or Customer Service based roles if the training is provided for you.

The good points...

There are jobs for data entry across all sectors from medical administration to marketing, education, public sector, sales and more!

... and the bad

Because the information you are recording will be used throughout the company it is essential it is accurate and recorded in a way that is easy to understand and use, particularly when you are dealing with sensitive information.

×

Network Analyst

Myth busting

A Network Analysts main job is to tailor-make computer systems for large businesses. Unlike other ICT jobs you will be involved in both the technical aspect of the business as well as a people-facing role - you will need to be able to identify problems and translate them into technical terms, then find a suitable business solution. The types of projects you can expect to work on are integrating phone and internet systems together or restructuring accounts like bank accounts to make the business run more efficiently and improve security. Network Analyst are also sometimes called systems analyst and business analysts.

A Principal Network Analyst/Supervisor at the top of their game can earn £50k + p/a
Job Role Progression: • Network Analyst Assistant/Apprentice
• Network Analyst
• Principal Analyst
• Project/Network Manager

Finer Details

On a usual week you can expect to work a standard 35-40hr week but there will be times when you are expected to stay late or even work weekends to meet deadlines for big projects.

Different Opportunities
- You may want to specialise in a field like security or banking to grow a certain client base and work on specific projects.
- There are opportunities to progress, or even move into entirely different roles like ICT Systems Architecture.

The good points...

There are often lots of job vacancies available for Network Analysts as there are lots of job sectors to work in. Additionally, you may have opportunities to work overseas.

... and the bad

Due to the nature of the role, even with programming experience most jobs will put you through an extensive period of training throughout your career each time you start somewhere new.

IT Sales/Service Desk

Myth busting

IT Sales and Service Desk Representatives require different traits to other IT roles due to the customer facing nature of their jobs. You will often work for a large company providing CRM, CMS or other IT-related solutions for businesses selling the best fit of the product to clients. You will then be expected to manage their account and handle any complaints, ensuring that the system is the best one available for their business requirements.

An IT Account Manager at the top of their game can earn £50k + p/a
Job Role Progression • IT Sales/Service Desk Assistant/Apprentice
• IT Sales/Service Desk Technician
• Senior IT Sales/Service Desk Technician
• IT Account Manager

Finer Details

Because of the nature of your job you will be interacting with clients during usual business hours, so you can expect to work within these hours, except when larger projects are due. In this case you may need to work in the evening to meet deadlines. You will often be expected to visit new clients when you set up their accounts, so you will need to have a driver's license and be comfortable interacting with people.

Different Opportunities
